Cycling is booming in south Sarasota County. The busy winter season has filled the Legacy trail with snow birds, the Carlton Reserve with mountain bikers and now the events are stacking up. The good people at Liv/Giant have teamed up with Real Bikes Venice for not one but two cycling related events specifically for women.
The first is a basic bicycle maintenance clinic. Jen Audia of Liv/Giant will be teaching participants about basic bike parts & how to perform a safety check. How to fix a flat & remove/re-install a rear wheel plus troubleshoot basic mechanical issues at home or on the road. It's a good place for locals to eat, drink, & make new friends to ride with!
There will also be give-aways!
The clinic takes place Thursday, Feb 20th, 6pm at the Real Bikes Venice store.
581 US Hwy 41 Bypass N, Venice, FL. 34284 - (941) 485-3113
